(MURFREESBORO) Gas prices inched lower over the weekend, as several major storms churn in the Atlantic. Several Murfreesboro discounters start the week with regular gas at $2.43 per gallon. Hurricane Florence is forecast to strike the U.S. east coast, yet gas prices have yet to be impacted.
"When a major storm approaches the U.S., gasoline markets can be just as unpredictable as the storm itself," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "It's unclear what, if any impact Hurricane Florence will have on prices at the pump outside the impacted area. Although there are no crude/gasoline refineries in the "cone of uncertainty", a major storm like this can threaten the regional supply chain, which can lead to rising prices."
Gas prices in Tennessee are slightly lower than a week ago. Sunday's state average of $2.59 per gallon is a half cent less than last week, 13 cents less than a month ago, and the same price as this time last year.
